Americans feared the worst on Sunday morning after Hillary Clinton, 68, suddenly left her position alongside other dignitaries at the commemoration event of 9/11 victims in NYC and was seen stumbling as she entered her official vehicle.
“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Lisa R. Bardack said in a statement on Sunday.
“On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”
“It was pretty hot out there, but she seemed fine to me, and left on her own accord,” Senator Chuck Schumer said in a statement to the New York Times.
Hillary Clinton has now cancelled her trip to California.
